need a car?

Do I really need a car in Naxos? I am the adventurous type and don't mind driving and I have an international drivers license, but please tell me if I would find a car convenient and if parking is easy or difficult and compare all the advantages to having a car to using public transportation.

A car is advisable for exploring the island. It makes you independent of the public bus schedules, which can be inconvenient for the mountain villages etc. The public buses are mainly meant for catering for the locals, and the schedules in off the beaten path villages are adjusted to those commuting for work in town.

In town parking along the seafront can be very difficult. There is big parking lot next to the town hall. If you go via the main square you pick a narrow street to the right of restaurant Scirocco to get there (the street is to the left from the square), otherwise you may go gown the hill leading into town and have the street to the left at the bottom of the hill.
